IFPA, or International Footbag Players’ Association, inc., is the international governing body of the sport of footbag, as well the official players’ association for the sport around the world. Organized as a U.S. 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit corporation, IFPA’s goals are to promote footbag as an amateur sport world-wide.

IFPA oversees and underwrites the annual championships as it moves from city to city around the world.

This website is owned and operated by IFPA, which serves its core mission of providing official rules, member services, instructional materials, online communities centered around footbag, videos, photos, press releases, group collaboration tools for footbag organizers, basic reference information on the sport, online tournament registration services, club listings, event listings, mailing lists, and much, much more.

IFPA is an all-volunteer organization, meaning that no individual is paid for his or her time. All money collected through various programs (primarily through donations) is used to offset “hard costs” of the organization — internet service (disk, bandwidth, etc.), amateur competitions (especially the World Championships), printing rule books, etc., etc.
